Red Vigor Orb – Buu Saga
Common - #31
Energy attack doing 3 life cards of damage.
Empower 3. Remove one of your opponent's Allies or Drills in play
from the game. Lower your opponent's anger 2 levels.
Not a bad card. Red Energy Blast from Trunks
Saga all over again.
What this card breaks down to be is either an
energy for 6 life or energy for 3, nuke a Drill or Ally, while also
lowering anger 2. This can be debated with Red Energy Blast over
placement in a deck, mainly depending on the anger. I can see this
being a staple in Red WGS decks, if that ever gets played.
Red Energy Blast does 4 life and raises anger
1, which is amazing in Red Anger decks. I put that card in every Red
deck because of its tech ability. This new one will find homes in
decks that don’t raise their anger and/or need the anti-anger. You
can argue over which card is better and have a valid argument for
either. It all depends on the deck.
The key is the empower which can prove helpful
if there is nothing to remove. That helps a tiny bit for Red WGS
decks, and to do a tiny bit more damage, but personally that won’t
matter in Red anger.
Generally you should look at your Red deck
Anger: Use Red Energy Blast
Like your Level 1: Use Red Vigor Orb
Red Energy (WGS): Use both
That’s how I’d look at it.
Also, one of the minor differences is the fact
this is a common while Red Energy Blast is an uncommon. Hence, you’d
probably want to go with Red Energy Blast because of Red Escape and
the pure power of that card. But, of course, Red Escape won’t find a
home in a deck that stays on its level 1, so you can stick with
This card is not a bad card, and would be
played a lot if Red Energy Blast weren’t invented. Unfortunately for
this card it is, so it takes a hit because of that and will only be
used in some decks.
Standard: 2.7 out of 5.0 (still a good tech
card, just all depends on the deck it is going in)
Tuff Enuff: 3.1 out of 5.0 (piddly one anger
won’t matter, Empower helps in this format)
Sealed: 3.5 out of 5.0 (lower anger, tech, can
be energy for 6, easy to pull, hey, not bad)
